Is there a drink station on course?
This is a no cup event so you must bring your own drink bottle, hydration pack. Tailwind is available at the drink stations depending on which event you have entered they are located at approximately 5km, 9km, 15km. As the course loops around you will pass these locations again for the 30km, the first station stretches out to 6.5 on the 55km course.
Please bring your own nutrition if required.
You will need a bladder for water or water bottles, a waterproof jacket if the weather looks a bit iffy and a thermal is highly recommended. We won’t be checking packs, this event is relying on general common sense for participants and their dogs. There are plenty of River frontage and dams for the dogs to drink from and cool off in. Fingers crossed for good weather!
We want this to be a fun event and tried to make the course a challenge without being overly rediculous on the elevation. So depending on the brand of watch and the setting you have it on you can get approximately 460m gain for the 15km, 1000m gain for the 30km and 1500m for the 55km
